The exam consists of a computerized multiple-choice exam that examines the candidate’s knowledge of both basic and intermediate life-saving techniques and a practical exam that allows an individual to demonstrate their ability to use these techniques.
The exam-taker will have 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete the exam.
The candidate will receive a passing grade if he or she completes at least 85% of the exam correctly.
A candidate that passes the AEMT exam will be certified as an Advanced EMT and can serve on basic, intermediate, or advanced life support units without additional supervision or on advanced life support units with a paramedic on board. However, there may also be additional certifications required to work as a certified Advanced EMT depending upon the region or state in which you work.
Potential candidates for the AEMT should contact the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians online or by phone to pay the registration fee and receive permission to take the exam.
Once the candidate receives permission to take the exam, the candidate can schedule a test date with Pearson VUE. The registration fee for the exam is currently $100.
